20 things you should never order from Starbucks

Starbucks worst PROMO

The INSIDER Summary:

  • INSIDER rounded up the 20 food and drink menu items at Starbucks to avoid, based on calories, fat, sugar, and sodium content (if applicable).
  • The worst food offender: the chicken and double-smoked bacon panini
  • The worst drink offender: the cinnamon roll Frappuccino


It has become somewhat of a joke among coffee connoisseurs that if you want dessert, you go to Starbucks; if you want a cup of coffee, make it yourself. Of course, no one really orders a venti, double-whip caramel mocha Frappuccino (number 14 on this list!) and thinks they're getting something healthy.

Nevertheless, INSIDER has rounded up the 20 Starbucks menu items — both food and drink — that you should never order, especially if you're watching your diet. We based our findings on calories, fat, sugar, and sodium content (where applicable). The nutritional content of each drink listed below is for a grande drink made with whole milk.

Keep scrolling to cross these 20 items off your diet-friendly Starbucks order list.
